Used Guns
(and neat stuff :)
For Sale

December 19, 201

 

Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, at least for now, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling from out of town we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies:)

 

All Prices are in Canadian Dollars and Note!  No foreign (including US) sales - sorry!     Used Guns are all subject to a one week inspection period.  Return prepaid for full refund if not satisfied.

We will also sell your handgun or long gun for a 15% commission (or $50, whichever is higher).  We need it here for inspection before accepting for sale.   Call or email for details.

 

  Shipping and Tax extra (unless otherwise indicated) - Tax is 5 and 7% in BC, HST wherever it is in force, 5% GST elsewhere.       Shipping usually in the $20 to $50 range with  full insurance depending on where you are and the value of the gun....  Long guns in a new hard case - add $24

You may notice the line-up below changes constantly.  Sales have been brisk and a lot of guns don't even make it to this page.   If you have a special item you are looking for, let me know and I'll contact you as soon as something likely shows up.  Well over half of the guns I get have a home already picked out :)

Click on images to enlarge - I usually have lots more pics of the guns below, so just ask!  AND trade-ins almost always welcome

  Jean and I have decided it's time to cut back a little on shooting (and guns) so will be selling a few:  some tricked out revolvers, my slicked-up Custom Tokarev, MAYBE Jean's 9x40 Open gun.......Hmmm  Maybe not!
   
Coming soon:   Para-Ordnance GI 45, 22 SIG Mosquito...

Here now, pics soon  :  Savage Heavy barrel 9317 with scope, another nice Tactical tricked-out 870, a lovely wood-stocked Norinco M14 , a 1940 BSA made Lee Enfield that has the nicest bore and internals I've come across. Hmm - maybe I should  get the wood and restore it to its former glory...also a neat Swiss rifle in 41 rimfire (with some ammo), and a like-new Tanfoglio 9mm...

 

  Restricted Handguns:
   
  This is a custom ARMCO/SPS IPSC Standard gun in 40 built for a friend in Alberta some years ago. Only test fired (here), it has now become apparent he won't be shooting it  :(  A few years ago I managed to import a few SPS frames and slides from Barcelona - It's true -Spanish steel is better!  These are true clones of the STI with better steel, and some wonderful guns were built using them but eventually US gun prices went down, the EURO went up, and importation became tougher.  About that time, I stopped building Custom guns anyway...:(    This one is serial number ARMCO 004 and is really one-of a kind.  Full contour match bull barrel, lightened slide, lovely contoured and stippled grip, integral magwell, all top class internals, all parts interchange with STI/SVI including mags - there are six fitted SVI mags with ARMCO machined aluminum pads  - $2390 with one mag - More mags $90 each...
  Like-new Norinco 1911A1 in 45 Auto - tight and accurate, this one carries a one year Armco warranty .  Two mags, case...$399 - trades?
  This S&W 460 (like most of them) has been sparingly fired (exactly 100 rounds) and comes with the Spare sights and  compensator (those really work - there  is actually very little muzzle rise with the hot loads  :)   Add $100 for local buyers and we throw in 3 boxes of ammo.  $1249 - trades?
  This is a 1974 vintage Star Modelo Super in 9mm.  Spanish made and imported into South Africa in the '80's and subsequently here.  Two magazines - ALMOST a 1911, these are very well built, with quite a few features other 1911's could use - loaded chamber indicator, external extractor, slot type barrel locking system like CZ, ambi slide release, and NO GRIP SAFETY! as well as a  very nice trigger.  They shoot beautifully - this one is almost unfired and very snugly fitted - $749 - trades?
  40 S&W caliber IPSC Standard Division CZ Masterpiece. This CZ Tactical Sports is not stock - added is an adjustable rear sight and matching front, comes with the factory case, 2 mags, and a spares kit worth over well over $200.  These come with a 20 oz trigger pull which has to be experienced to be believed, $1099 - trades? 
This WG Webley Target model of 1889 is in 476/455 caliber and should qualify as an antique as soon as I can get the paperwork done  :) Initially purchased on October 7th, 1891...
  This marvelous Colt "Mid-range" Gold Cup in 38 Special  shows some use but is perfect inside.  All of the shooting was done with the included Pachmayr grips, so the original Colt walnut grips are new, and pretty.  Two original mags and one aftermarket one makes for a nice bonus as they are really hard to come by...I have one of these myself and it is really a delight to shoot, so soft and accurate  :)  This one is going to make you a better shooter, too, mine did for me!  It wears a Millett front sight as did a lot of these wonderful bullseye guns - $1290 - trades?   On hold, Jake  :)
  Another Webley WG, this one the Army Model and in .455/476 caliber (still shoots 455 Webley).  This one was purchased from Holland & Holland, shows some exterior wear, but has a pristine bore and innards, great trigger action and and lovely tight lock-up  :)  I should be able to de-register this one no problem...A chip off the grip, but I have new ones  :)  On hold, Josh  :)
  Another WW1 revolver that I really want for myself  :)  This is the Smith & Wesson  Hand Ejector MarkII Second Model in 455 Webley caliber.  Unaltered in any way, with a very shiny bore and as-new internals.  Shows very little shooting ...   I see no military markings so likely a civilian purchase.  $890 - trades?
  This Hi-Power 9mm is the Argentine FM version and has been extensively customized by Clarence here: Gorgeous crisp trigger ($200 worth of Cylinder & Slide pieces), slide tightened to frame and barrel accurized plus magazine disconnect removed, adjustable Tactical STI rear sight and dovetailed front, accessory rail & finger groove Hogue grips - Now $649 - trades? This pistol is exceptionally tight and accurate!
  This is a real find! an immaculate AMT Hardballer 45 dating from the mid-'80's and completely original, box and all  :)  Appears test fired only, and this one is wonderfully tight (that means use a good lube :).  tRIGGER PULL IS quite NICE - $899 - TRADES?
   
   
  Saying this is special doesn't even start to do it justice.  I have never seen an example this nice of a 1903 Pocket Model Colt 38 "Rimless Smokeless" in a museum or book.  Also known as the Model 1903 Pocket Hammer .38, much scarcer than the 6" military models, this is a 4.5", made in 1917, with a shorter grip and magazine than the more common military model.  Has been fired, but likely less than a box, and handling wear is extremely light, with a perfect bore and internals.  Ammo - .38 ACP, NOT 38 Super - is still readily available..Now $1890 - trades welcome.
 
 
  Here is the basis for a great 1911!  Complete lower built on a Caspian frame with their unique finger groove frontstrap, Wilson magwell, ambi safety, STI trigger, Competition hammer and innards, stainless beavertail and extended mag button...  set up for 45 but easily changed to 9mm/40  $349 - trades?
  An as-new tuned STI Spartan lower - set up for 9mm (can be set up for 40 or 45)  Now $399 complete with slide stop and magazine ..
   
  Rimfire Handguns:
   The new 22 GSG Stainless Model is here - and as usual, tuned and smoothed here, without the magazine disconnect and with a lovely, crisp trigger pull.  One mag, case, interchangeable sights, manual, tools... These are a full scale 1911, not reduced in size like the Browning and Colt, are quite accurate  and very reliable (I have owned one for two years now).  They do like the hotter ammo for best accuracy and performance but seem to chug right along with anything you can feed it :)  $489 with a one year Armco warranty - trades?
  Beretta Neos 22  - barely fired - $299 - trades?  I also have 4 extra factory mags (new $60) at $30 each  :)
  Beautiful Ruger New Model stainless Single Six Convertible- almost new, original box, manual, spare 22WMR cylinder - $599 - Trades?
A NICE Ruger Mark 1 Standard 22 with the easy-to-hit-with 6 7/8" barrel.  One magazine - $229 - trades?
  Here is one of the sought-after High-Standard Supermatic Trophy models fitted with an Aimpoint/Ron Power scope/red dot sight mount - 2 mags, papers,  lovely bore and action - $469 - trades?  These models have phenomenal trigger pulls!
  Prohibs:
   And this 4" Python is absolutely gorgeous - one-owner, unfired, original box and papers with the 1983 registration papers.  Has 2 pairs of Hogue exotic (Pao Ferro and Rosewood) grips and a rubber set (in case he ever decided to go shooting with it) as well as the mint factory ones, six HKS Speedloaders and the Safariland belt clips for them - $1790 - Trades? 
This Bernardelli Model 60 is a .32 (7.65) pocket pistol that's unfired - one mag, marvelous condition, comes with the best trigger pull I've ever felt on a pocket pistol!  $149 - trades?
  Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...
MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but built for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm shortly after,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  Now $199 - no tax 
These Basque autos are Spanish-made and actually shoot rather well.  I used to own a .32 many years ago and recall it as being a decent shooter.  Not of the same quality as a PPK, naturally, but very usable.  This one is in .380 and is a little more serious than the .32's. Box, 2 mags...now $149, no tax - Trades? 
This is a Star Model SI in .32 (7.65) and its holster, second magazine, and locked-breech (miniature 1911) action is a joy to shoot.  All-steel and very well made, not one of the potmetal pistols so common from post-war Europe...$349 - trades?  No tax  :)
All right - time to lose this Model 66-2 Smith & Wesson - and this one is special!  2.5" barrel, round butt - and what a butt!  A gorgeous looking (and feeling) Hogue exotic wood grips as well as the stockers, and a pair of Hogue rubber ones for casual shooting.   Tuned and slicked up inside of course  :)  This one really impresses with magnum loads although I tend to shoot mostly 38 Specials - $800 - no tax  :)
LONG GUNS:
This Benelli Nova 12 gauge assault shotgun is very smooth and and has a well-deserved reputation for speed and reliability.  Wonderful sights - appears unfired but at the most 20 rounds or so...$499 - trades?  On hold - Kolton  :)
Mossberg 590A1 12 ga combat shotgun with special larger safety and Mesa Tactical shell holder - This is THE tactical pump shotgun  to have -  $599 - trades?
  This left hand stainless/Laminate  Ruger M77 Mark II is in the popular 300 Win Mag caliber.  Equipped with a lovely Bushnell Elite 4200 scope in 2.5 - 10 magnification (remember when 2 1/2 to 7 was wonderful?)  Rifle is almost unfired and still looks new - This combination was over $1400 new - $990 - trades?
  As-new 300 Weatherby Magnum!  This Vanguard model is in the tough synthetic/black finish and the hard-hitting proprietary 300 Weatherby Caliber.   $449 - trades?
   
  A very special Ruger 10-22 - this is the heavy target version with the stainless hammer-forged barrel, laminated stock, and fitted with a (perfect for this rifle) 1.5-6 Bushnell scope.  $499 - trades?
  This Robinson Armament XCR-M in 308 is non-restricted!  Almost new, it has a bipod, forward pistol grip, a Pmag as well as a stock mag and a very cool Tactical case    - $2490 - trades?  There are also 8 more factory mags available at $25 each  on hold - Trevor  :)
  OK, here's my pride and joy - my Savage-based custom 1000 yard rifle (works pretty darn well at shorter distances, too!) with  only 1850 rounds on it (In this caliber a rifle like this (it's always been loaded with the very cool-burning H1000 powder) will normally go over 3000 rounds before the barrel needs to be moved back or replaced)  a 27" stainless Krieger barrel, custom-fitted laminated stock, left hand oversize bolt handle (I shoot right handed but prefer to work the bolt left-handed like a lot of right-handers, keeping my grip intact), tactical rings and Swarovski 6-24 Habicht scope, wonderful trigger, Stony Point OAL gauge, Redding competition die set (over $300), lots of Lapua brass,  Sierra 142 grain Match kings, other assorted match bullets, everything but powder (H1000) and primers - and for local buyers, I have that as well... -  Now  $2100 (or $1200 for the rifle, $1100 for the scope which is as-new with original box and papers) - no Tax.  This rifle also works like a charm for left-handers, of course!
  An early unfired Ruger M77 in 250 Savage (250-3000) and with the desirable tang safety and open sights - $990 - trades?
   
  I competed in 3-gun matches with one of these for two years and although not as accurate as my current Stag Arms Custom, it ran and ran and... Decently accurate, though - 1.625" at 100 yards  :) This Norinco AR is the 20" barreled one I prefer and sports a neat forestock and an NC Star 3-9 P4 Sniper scope.  2 mags, internals show little wear (I'd say a thousand rounds or less) Decent trigger - $599 - trades?
  Gorgeous 22 Hornet single shot Anschutz model 1700  Double set triggers, lovely condition, has not been fired much at all.  $1350 (scope gone) - trades?  Comes with a lovely $80 soft rifle case...(and two boxes of factory ammo for a local buyer :)
  Now this is really lovely!  A Sako 85L Bavarian in 7mm Magnum with a breath-taking piece of wood and Sako's usual smooth action and flawless metal work.  The scope was a Zeiss Conquest HD5 in 2-10X42 (Now gone) with $180 worth of Sako Opti-lock bases and rings - Still on the rifle) - wow!   $1890 with bases and rings but without scope.  (If you miss out on this one, you can find one at Grouse River at $2139 plus rings and bases  :)  This one has been fired but it's hard to tell...
 

A mint unfired John Rigby 275 Model 98 Sporter, complete with the best QD claw mounts made (worth a small fortune alone).  This rifle is gorgeous (and should be for the over $9000 retail price).  Now $6490 - Trades welcome..

 

  Lovely Smith & Wesson Model 1500 rifle in 30-06 Caliber.  This very nice rifle was built by Howa in Japan (Think Weatherby Vanguard with old style workmanship) and mounts a 3-9 scope and a lovely leather sling.  Shows very little use, and was obviously well cared for - Now $549 - trades? 
  A great shooting 270WSM stainless Weatherby Vanguard with 1" rings, ready for your scope - decent trigger, a few scuffs but so what? These are some of the most under-rated hunting rifles made (By Howa in Japan)   Now $549 Trades? 
  12(5) Dae Woo Max II in 5.56 (223)  $899 - trades?  These rifles are in my estimation superbly engineered and built, much better quality than either the M16 or AK47/74 of its era.  Takes AR mags, the folder is solid and easy to use, sights very usable, better ergonomics than any of the popular ones today - too bad it's a 12(5) prohib!!  Hey!  Maybe the Feds will make this non-restricted....
  And here's that nice older Remington single-shot 12 gauge (2 3/4") shotgun - $139 - trades?  Who am I kidding- Trades?
  Brand new in box - Maverick 12 gauge Model 88 with 2 barrel options, Field and "Security" slug barrels - $299 - trades?

  An almost-new Guga Ribas IPSC holster set up for the CZ Tactical Sports 40 Standard gun Easily adapted to the CZ75 as well.  These are amazing holsters - secure yet lightning-fast (i've used them  :)  Super-adjustable, $200 new - $125
  This Ghost Holster is set up for CZ785's and is currently my favourite - so fast yet secure - I once slid down a steep grassy incline and my open gun in the Ghost holster caught on a post and stopped me dead!  Wow!  $125
  Browning HiPower mags by Mec-Gar - the best HiPower mags made, with the spring-loaded ejection feature.  These are made (and so marked) for the 40, but work great with 9mm (and hold more rounds) - and it's LEGAL!   $40 each
  This is a very versatile pancake holster - can be used right or left handed - so far I've tried a Beretta, a SIG P226, an HK compact (perfect length for the extended barrel), and a Glock 22.  A perfect fit for the Argentine Hi-power above, too! I'd use it with any of these  :)    Would work with a 1911 if the belt was drawn up nice and tight  :)  $40...
